Smartphone sensors have shown to be adequate to perform physics experiments in high school and first-year university physics courses. The published work covers a wide range of topics within general physics such as linear and circular motions, oscillations, beats, acoustics, and optics, among others. The microphone and speakers have been particularly useful for studying sound phenomena, such as the determination of the speed of sound, the study of acoustic beats, or the Doppler effect.
